This colloquium features scholars addressing gaps in both Islamic studies and the study of Latin America and the Caribbean in transdisciplinary perspective. Because the study of Latin America and the Caribbean is not at the center of Islamic studies and the study of Islam and Muslims is not at the center of Latin America and Caribbean studies, this colloquium offers space for discussing novel, experimental research in both fields, which will further promote their respective incorporation.
Participating scholars include Dr. Aisha Khan (New York University, keynote), Dr. Philipp Bruckmayr (University of Vienna), Dr. Ken Chitwood (Freie Universität Berlin), Dr. Aliyah Khan (University of Michigan), Dr. Nora Lafi (Leibniz-Zentrum Moderner Orient), Andrea Miranda (Freie Universität Berlin), Dr. Arely Medina (Universidad de Guadalajara), and Dr. Alaina Morgan (Stanford University).
Additional details about schedule, registration, etc. will be available in early September.
